Don't Judge Me

This morning I realized I had never re-hung my bamboo wind chimes after taking them down to make way for Christmas decorations. 

So, I grabbed a ladder and headed outside.  I was standing on the ladder and reaching blindly, as the sun was in my eyes and I couldn't find the hook hidden in the rafters.

After a bit of  wriggling around on the ladder, I finally found a shady spot where I could see what I was doing.....but then discovered a freakin' possum right in front of my face, just staring at me with its beady eyes!

I scrambled down the ladder, ran in the house and locked the door.

(Because we all know possums can't pick locks.)
